The German bishops issued the decree on Friday warning Catholics who stop paying the tax they would be excluded from all religious activities, also including working in a church job, becoming a godparent or taking part in parish activities.

"'Pay and pray' is a completely wrong signal at the wrong time," the reformist movement We Are Church said today. The decree "shows the great fear of the German bishops and the Vatican about further serious losses in church tax revenue".

so they levy a heavier tax and tithing load on the faithful, give and it shall be given back to so many fold if not you must have sinned somewhere in your giving to god, but does god need so much when he created life, surely he can bless his church servants instead of them forcing the faithful to cough up or get out.

maybe perhaps the reason for the delay of the second coming has been finances.

again that is another excuse for not taking responsibility for your actions i did this because i love god or the bad i did was not me but the devil inside me tempting me to do it.

Well, there is a recession at the moment. Perhaps he will wait until the economy picks up Smile ?

As long as the second coming is not in the wrong country it might be OK. I realised in the current climate of political correctness and over reaction its impossible to make such a comment more specific.

However, I am sure if he arrived in Rome they probably would not recognise him. After all they would really not like someone to out rank the Pope.
